Constance Cove
Constance Cove is located on the eastern side of Esquimalt Harbour. It was named after HMS Constance, which, in 1848, became one of the first Royal Navy vessels to anchor at Esquimalt Harbour.1 The Cove was named in 1847 by an officer of the Plumper, James Wood, though one of Pemberton's maps from 1855 shows the Cove as Village Bay.2
